The 39th Annual Summer Holiday Exhibition for Children
How is salt related to animals' life?

July 21, Saturday, – August 26, Sunday, 2018

The 30th anniversary summer holiday exhibition for children is all about animals and salt. All animals and humans need salt to maintain their life. The way to take in salt or the quantity of salt they need, however, vary depending on how and where they live and what they live on. The animals that live in a zoo are also fed the right amount of salt. This year’s special summer exhibition brings on a virtual zoo into the exhibition room so that the children can “interview” lions, forest elephants, giraffes, sea turtles, green pigeons, and penguins and learn the secrets of their salt consumption―“How do the grazing animals take in salt? ” “Don’t the animals in the sea take too much salt?” Children can also know how much salt they have in their bodies by using the special salt-scale.

During the exhibition period, there will also be: scientific demonstrations to illustrate various characteristics of salt; a workshop where visitors can learn the difference of the shapes of salt crystals by watching them with a microscope and making salt crystals in easy way; and a Q&A section. Children and parents alike will enjoy and learn something new about the world of salt.
